Dr. Anthony Fauci is widely expected to retire from public life in December ahead of a Republican takeover of the House of Representatives. Fauci gave a farewell address from the White House on Tuesday that was fraught with lies, including the discredited talking point that vaccines stop the spread of the coronavirus.
While millions of Americans are anxiously awaiting Fauci being held accountable for his numerous demonstrable falsehoods, there is a faint hope of accountability that may be provided by an ongoing lawsuit exposing Big Tech’s collusion with Covid “experts” during the pandemic.
A judge in September ordered Dr. Fauci, as well as former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki and current White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, to provide testimony on their role in Big Tech’s censorship of Americans’ views on the Covid pandemic. On Wednesday, Fauci provided a 7-hour deposition on this matter.
Fauci’s desposition was sealed under court order, but Dr. Aaron Kheriaty gave the most detailed overview of the deposition. One revelation from the hearing turned out to be particularly damning.
“UPDATE: from our deposition of Fauci yesterday in the MO v. Biden case,” Dr. Kheriaty began. “Fauci confirmed that in Feb 2020, Fauci sent Clifford Lane, his deputy at the NAIAD, as the U.S. representative for the WHO delegation to China. Lane convinced Fauci we should emulate China’s lockdowns. The CCP had announced China had contained the virus through draconian lockdowns–a claim now known to be false.”
“Given the China’s pattern of falsified information, Lane and Fauci should have approached this claim with skepticism,” Kheriaty continued. “Lockdowns were wholly untested & unprecedented. As our lawyer, @Leftylockdowns1 put it, Fauci ‘was apparently willing to base his lockdown advocacy on the observations of a single guy relying on reports from a dictator.’ Not exactly a double-blind randomized trial level of evidence, or indeed, any level of evidence.”
“Days after Lane returned, WHO published its report praising China’s strategy: ‘China’s uncompromising and rigorous use of non-pharmaceutical measures [lockdowns] to contain transmission of the COVID-19 virus in multiple settings provides vital lessons for the global response. ‘This rather unique and unprecedented public health response in China reversed the escalating cases,’ the report claimed. My colleague @jeffreyatucker at the @brownstoneinst gave a tongue-in-cheek gloss of WHO’s misty eyed report: ‘I’ve seen the future—and it is Wuhan’.”
“Lockdowns quickly spread from China to the West, as a troubling number of Western apologists besides the WHO also looked to the Chinese Communist Party’s covid response for guidance,” he continued. “The U.S. & U.K. followed Italy’s lockdown, which had followed China, and all but a handful of countries around the globe immediately followed our lead. Within weeks the whole world was locked down. From the very beginning, the evidential basis for this global policy catastrophe was always paper-thin. We are now living in the aftermath.”
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry noted that Fauci had convenient memory issues during the deposition.
“Wow!” Landry said. “It was amazing to spend 7 hours with Dr. Fauci. The man who single-handedly wrecked the U.S. economy based upon “the science.” Only to discover that he can’t recall practically anything dealing with his Covid response!”
Civil rights attorney Jenin Younes recounted another embarrassing episode involving Fauci.
“Another highlight from yesterday’s deposition of Fauci: between February 2020, when he emailed a friend saying masks don’t work, and April 3 2020, he became convinced by ‘studies’ that masks work,” Younes said. “He couldn’t name any of these studies, of course, because he’s too busy saving lives to be bothered by such trivialities, but he’s certain that they show masks work.”
“Also, he made the court reporter wear a mask because she was sniffling, even though she said it was allergies,” she continued. “’The last thing in the world I want is to get covid.’ That’s verbatim.”
More than 50 Biden officials in 12 federal government agencies have been exposed for colluding with Big Tech to censor their political opponents in a major lawsuit filed by state attorneys general.
